A live streaming solution allows you to capture video in real time and broadcast it to consumers in real time, such as streaming interviews, conferences and sporting events online. Through this solution, video is captured by a video camera and sent to a channel input endpoint. The channel receives the live input stream and makes it available for streaming through a streaming endpoint to a web browser or mobile app. The channel also provides a preview monitoring endpoint to preview and validate your stream before further processing and delivery. The channel can also record and store the ingested content in order to be streamed later (video on demand).

Demand Forecasting and Price Optimization

Pricing is recognized as a pivotal determinant of success in many industries and can be one of the most challenging tasks. Companies often struggle with several aspects of the pricing process, including accurately forecasting the financial impact of potential tactics, taking reasonable consideration of core business constraints, and fairly validating the executed pricing decisions. Expanding product offerings add further computational requirements to make real-time pricing decisions, compounding the difficulty of this already overwhelming task.

In an energy grid, energy consumers are engaged with various types of energy supplying, trading and storage components such as substations, batteries, wind farms, solar panels, micro-turbines and demand response bids to meet their respective demands and minimise the cost of energy commitment. To achieve this, the grid operator must determine how much energy each type of resource should commit over a given time frame, given the prices of soliciting different types of resources and the capacities and physical characteristics of each of them.

Keyword search/speech-to-text/OCR digital media

A speech-to-text solution allows you to identify speech in static video files so you can manage it as standard content, such as allowing employees to search within training videos for spoken words or phrases, and then enabling them to quickly navigate to the specific moment in the video. This solution allows you to upload static videos to an Azure website. The Azure Media Indexer uses the Speech API to index the speech within the videos and stores it in SQL Azure. You can search for words or phrases by using Azure Web Apps and retrieve a list of results. Selecting a result enables you to see where in the video the word or phrase is mentioned.
